Updated python-slip packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The Simple Library for Python (SLIP) packages contain miscellaneous code for convenience, extension and workaround purposes.
The python-slip packages have been upgraded to upstream version 0.2.20, which provides a number of bug fixes over the previous version. In addition, this update fixes a bug causing previous versions of python-slip to incorrectly determine whether SELinux was enabled or not. Therefore, convenience functions for writing files always attempted to set SELinux labels even if SELinux was disabled. This could cause for example the system-config-date tool to fail to change settings. (BZ#796323
All users of python-slip are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
